FAME CEO Adrian Tindall is stepping down after nearly five years in the role. He will be succeeded by Malcolm Cooper, formerly Regional Director with English Heritage and Chief Inspector with Historic Scotland.

Adrian said of his role at FAME “It’s been a hugely rewarding time, during which I feel FAME has moved forward significantly and, I hope, become increasingly influential within the sector and beyond. I should like to thank the Chair and Board members for their support, and of course the wider FAME membership for their encouragement, stimulating ideas and enjoyable company.

“I wish FAME all the very best for the future, in the sure knowledge that it is stronger than ever and in very capable hands”.

He will continue to work with his own consultancy, Archaeological Risk Management.
